Two thousand years ago, when the Lord Jesus did His work, the Pharisees adhered to the Bible and condemned the Lord’s work and they tried their best to prevent the Jewish believers from following the Lord Jesus. Finally, they nailed the Lord Jesus to the cross and were cursed and punished by God.
Now, when the Lord Jesus returns to the flesh and does the work of judgment starting from the house of God, the modern-day Pharisees, most pastors and elders in the religious world, convict and reject Him. They fabricate rumors, and spread heresies and fallacies to deceive believers and prevent them from investigating God’s work of the last days.
Why did God’s two incarnations, when He became manifest and did work, meet with resistance and condemnation from religious world? What is the source of this matter? If we cannot discern the God-defying essence of the last days’ Pharisees, won’t it be very easy for us to follow them in condemning and rejecting Christ of the last days so that we miss the opportunity to welcome the Lord’s return?

William, a Christian, happens to make the acquaintance of some brothers and sisters from The Church of Almighty God. Through gathering and having fellowship with them, he learns a lot of truths and mysteries he’s never understood in his faith before and feels very nurtured spiritually. But then he comes across some rumors online that leave him feeling uncomfortable and confused: Could The Church of Almighty God really be like what it says online? Should he keep looking into it? And if Almighty God truly is the Lord returned, won’t he lose his chance to welcome the Lord if he doesn’t investigate it? Under God’s wondrous guidance, he decides to let go of his notions and continues to look into it. He comes to understand the principle to investigating the true way through reading Almighty God’s words, he gains some discernment over the lies, and becomes certain that Almighty God is the returned Lord Jesus. He then joyfully accepts Almighty God’s work of the last days.
